December 12, 1759

1759 December 12 (Wednesday).  Little Jeduthun having had from some Days a bad swelling under his Chin, it broke this Morning and run: we hope to his great Relief.  His Mother has been poulticing it several Days.  Mr. Adonijah Rice broke and dressed out almost 6 pound of Flax for us.  Mr. Forb. and he dine here.  P.M. [blank] Batchellour comes and brings my Hatt that was taken away from Capt. Woods on the 3d and he informs me it was Mr. Robert Taft of Upton who undesignedly took it away, and did not mind that he had Such an Hatt till the next sabbath.  Mr. Forb. goes to Visit his Father.
